Nickel Plate Road No.765 pounds through a level crossing with a vintage truck in front near Owosso Michigan on July 26, 2009 during the “Train Festival” hosted by the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso.  The event was held to raise funds for the restoration of Pere Marquette 1225 (a Berkshire locomotive which is almost identical to NKP765 and famous for being the model for the Polar Express in the Tom Hanks CGI movie).
